part of north eagle, against the ugandans. the government of the democratic republic of the congo needs to do everything that it possibly can to not allow groups like this to continue to operate out of and from their territory. i'm not in any way accusing them of aiding and abetting, but the mere fact that they don't have security and control of the territory effectively allows this to go on. but it needs to stop. clearly needs to stop. third point with respect to the leader of the allied democratic front, we have, in fact, sanctioned him. we have imposed both visa travel and financial sanctions on him in response to the very criminal things that we know that he is responsible for doing. spent ambassador, thank you very much, and thank you for all your work on the ground. in africa, with these groups, i know as things were unfolding in eastern congo, you were there trying to influence the course of events. we appreciate that. i yield back, mr. chairman. thanks very much. >> let me ask just two final questions of this man. together final question, please fire way. again, in your testimon
admired the pin that i have on today. it is an eagle that many of the women in the senate wear. theretherewe have a little -- wa little collection. this one is from the smithsonian. he said i love it. it's so pretty. i'm going to get one for my wife. well, i don't know if senator inouye ever got it for his wife, irene. but i say to my colleagues today, at an appropriate time, in behalf of the women of the united states senate, i will present this pin to mrs. inouye in honor of her husband. our gift to her because he gave so many gifts to us. he was a lion in the senate, a real american hero. though gentle in style, he was a fierce warrior when it came to fighting for his nation or standing up for hawaii. when he received his medal of honor, he was rising to the call of the sirens at pearl harbor, volunteering to serve his country, putting aside his own dreams to be a physician. but he went on to be a healer of many wounds. he was decorated in world war ii for saving his fellow soldiers. my experience with senator inouye as a friend was that he was a devoted, dedicated public s
of the kind of career dick lugar has had, consider this -- he was an eagle scout, first in his class in high school, first in his class in college, a rhodes scholar, naval intelligence briefer, corporate turn-around artist and big city mayor, and that was all by the age of 35. he has excelled at everything he has ever done, and most incredibly, he's done it with perfectly smooth elbows. walk into any office on capitol hill, and you won't find a single person who would say a bad word about dick lugar. he's earned the respect and admiration of everyone who ever crossed his path. i assure you in the world of politics, that's nothing short of a miracle. and now dick has decided to press his luck. he's moving into the only line of work where rivalries are even more vicious than in politics. he's becoming a college professor. dick and i go all the way back to my first senate race in 1984. he was the head of the nrcs at the time and he took a chance on me and i have always been grateful. he has been a friend ever since. a lot of hoosiers cross the ohio river every day to work in kentucky, but it's
